Eating healthy is the best way to achieve a better body, health and skin. A proper diet also ensures that you always feel and look your best. Incorporating super foods, like brussels sprouts, into your diet will offer amazing health and skincare benefits. On a personal note, if you think you don’t like brussel sprouts, try them again. Up until a year ago I hadn’t touched them since I was a kid. I had dinner at my brother’s house and my sister in law teaches cooking. I tried the brussel sprouts and they were great. Now I even cook them myself!
Brussels sprouts provide high levels of Vitamin C, sulforaphane and antioxidants. When these key elements are combined, they protect the body against viral infections and cancer. The high concentration of Vitamin C also supports collagen production, creating better skin elasticity for a more youthful appearance.
Incorporating brussels sprouts in to your diet is one of many ways you can help take better care of your body, inside and out.

Many people require a big mug of caffeinated coffee to start the day, sugary snacks in the afternoon to power through work or childcare, and then find themselves exhausted every evening. Having enough energy throughout the day can be a challenge, but by making these three small changes anyone can begin to look and feel more rested every day.
1. Set a Sleep Schedule: The human body functions best when it is able to fall asleep and wake up at the same time each day, even on the weekends. Although it might be enjoyable to sleep in on the weekends, it will only interrupt the body’s sleeping pattern and cause tiredness throughout the rest of the week. Aim to get 7-8 hours of sleep each night, heading to bed and waking up at the exact same time each day, in order to feel more rested, awake and full of energy each day.
2. Exercise Daily: Although those who lack energy may think that expending energy in the form of exercise is counterintuitive, it is actually a great way to feel more awake and energized. Consider starting each and every day with a workout. This could be anything from an hour long jog to a few minutes stretching or even walking to work instead of driving. The endorphins brought about by regular exercise will provide more energy throughout the day.
3. Eat Often: Rather than skipping on meals and eating sugary snacks throughout the day, aim to eat small, nutritious meals every few hours. This will keep your blood sugar levels stable, allowing you to have even energy rather than sharp spikes and crashes.
By setting a consistent sleep schedule, exercising daily and eating small, frequent meals throughout the day, it is possible to feel more alert and energetic each and every day.
